ALA Awards announced.

And Geraldine McCaughrean's The White Darkness takes the Printz!

If I had the ability to do backflips, I would!  As it is, I have a spring in my step and a song in my heart*.  I'm so very very happy about this choice.

All of the other winners and honor books here.

Also, David Lubar has offered up his comments section to all of the authors who DIDN'T win as a space to "complain, rant, moan, or vent".  As he says, "When life gives you lemons, make sour grapes."  (That might be my new favorite line.) 

*What's that from?  Is it from something?  Or is it just a random cliche?
